For this year’s Open World, SQL Developer got lots and lots of love from the conference organizers and keynote speakers. I think SQL Devleoper was mentioned, demoed, or both in at least 3 of the executive keynotes.
We had many successful, and FULL, hands on labs – led by the lovely Ashley Chen.
And our SQL Developer talks were in the top 10 most popular in the Database/Tools tracks. Some Steven Feuerstein guy beat me out by a bit, need to look him up…but anyways, in addition to being the ‘big boys room’ – our 3 main talks were also video recorded.
The recordings were done via Oracle University. However, you can stream them…for free! They should be available to non-subscribers later this afternoon – Friday, October 31, Eastern Time.
Those videos were made available this week and you can watch them on demand. Each are about 45 minutes long.
Those talks are:
- What’s New in Oracle SQL Developer (and Data Modeler!) version 4.1
- Oracle SQL Developer for the DBA
- SQL Developer Tips & Tricks
I can’t stand to watch myself, much less hear my own voice, so give them a view and let me know what you think. If you enjoy a good bit of schadenfreude, stay through the end of the DBA talk to watch me stumble for about 5 minutes. Turns out I wasn’t connected to the right database, and I didn’t recover very gracefully. You can see that actual real time sql monitoring demo here.
